Abstract:

"Living with AIDS is a moving and inspiring look at how many people - whether actually infected or close to those who arehave come to grips with the disease. Determined and courageous, they demonstrate ways in which they have fashioned full, vital lives in the face of this daunting illness, and show that infection with the virus that causes AIDS need not lead to abject fear and despair." "Sal Lopes's stirring photographs fall into three interrelated sections. First is "The Quilt" - an inspiring look at the AIDS Memorial Quilt, each panel of which is created by people who have cared about and lost someone to this disease; the creation of these panels assures that their loved ones live on in memory and helps the quiltmakers come to terms with their lives and loss. Next comes "The Buddies," volunteers who have become caregivers for people with AIDS they have never met before. Finally "The Boyce Family" recounts the story of a married couple who cared enough about children born with HIV antibodies - and a child with full-blown AIDS - to make them the core of their adoptive family." "In her thoughtful introduction about photography and AIDS, Vicki Goldberg examines how photographers have dealt with the physiological manifestations of this disease or its political ramifications. But Sal Lopes is more concerned with conveying the courage and humanity demonstrated by those affected by it. Living with AIDS embodies a message of encouragement and strength that will provide reassurance for, and inspire hope in, anyone affected by what has become an unavoidable aspect of the human condition in our contemporary world." --Book Jacket.
